Idleon Builds Overview (How To Create Optimised Builds)

While it can be good to have a builds reference as a beginner guide the best builds vary based on your account progression and understanding the basic mechanics of Idleon will help you create your own optimised builds. This is particularly important early on as you will not have enough talent points to maximise all the important talents and need to regularly make decisions where to spend them to maximise gains for your specific account.

The absolute perfect min-max strategy to invest your talents points in Idleon is a constantly shifting benchmark as you factor in the likes of your character level, alchemy, equipment, cards and other account specifics. While some dedicated players may seek to calculate this the vast majority of Idleon players will be able to follow some general principles in designing their build to achieve nearly the same level of gains with significantly less effort which are discussed below.

In Idleon your character talent build will broadly fall into three categories and you’ll want to use the two talent presets that are available (unlocked at character level 30) to be able to quickly switch between your current character focus as necessary. Don’t forget that a build goes beyond talent points alone though and if you plan to truly optimise your gains you need to change things like your equipment, food, cards, card sets, star signs, large alchemy bubbles, prayers and divinity link.

The broad categories of builds are below and vary based on your specific objectives for each character at a point in time:

Skilling Idleon Builds

Skilling builds are focused on maximising your skilling gains (Idleon efficiency) which primarily come in the form of resources like ore, wood or bugs and experience in that specific skill. These don’t always go together though and sometimes you might want to maximise efficiency for resource gain at the cost of experience and vice versa depending on your goals.

While each skill is different each class has Idleon talents that can boost their AFK gains in specialised skills that are always a priority and closely followed by efficiency or experience boosts. While early on in your Idleon adventure you will often want a balance of efficiency and experience (as experience gained means more levels for better skilling equipment and talent points) there are situations later on where you actually don’t want or care about experience gain and simply want to maximise resources instead. The most obvious example of this is the W3 printer mechanic where resource gains are able to be snapshotted and printed from a machine without a character assigned to gather the resources. Players should also keep an eye out for talents that increase your resource gains in other ways, mining on warriors for example offers additional mining power for your tools (tool proficiency) and multi resource gains (motherlode miner).

AFK Fighting Idleon Builds

Your primary fighting build for fighting monsters while AFK, the focus of these builds leans heavily towards optimising damage for more kills which results in greater experience and monster drops that are the main reason to fight enemies in Idleon. The first step of this process is ensuring you have 100% accuracy for the mob you are intending to fight given this has a large impact on any gains. If you can’t reach at least 95% return to a previous map and follow our accuracy guide linked above first. After this similar to skilling you’ll want to maximise AFK fighting gains which each class offers in some form through their talents.

From here maximising your AFK gains is complex and based on your own account specifics of progression but generally you’ll want to obtain at least 1 point in your attacking talents (these have a pointed top left corner in the talent screen) and assign them to your attack bar. Early game you will likely need around 25-50 points in these active talents while later game you actually need less investment in attack talents as your damage simply out scales most caps that maps have on base kills so extra points might no longer contribute to your potential gains. You can test this for yourself by slowly adding extra points into these active attack talents and see if there are benefits to your AFK kills in the AFK Info screen.

Following this you’ll want to invest in talents that impact weapon power, the main stat for your class and then utility talents such as drop chance or speed. Note that weapon power is highly effective early game although has diminishing returns to the point that your class main stat becomes more powerful so you will need to experiment with your own stage of character progression.

Active Fighting Idleon Builds

An alterative fighting build for when you intend to play your character actively for things like farming crystal monsters, giants or maximising experience gained.

In Idleon this means using the Auto feature while keeping the game open and allowing your character to actively attack monsters rather than rely on AFK gains. Only one character can be active at a time with this mechanic and players should either regularly check on the game or consider purchasing the auto-loot mechanic ($5) to prevent the game lagging and potentially crashing due to the amount of loot that accumulates on the ground. In Idleon coins on the ground disappear after 20 minutes and other loot drops after an 1 hour although.

The best active class in Idleon depends on your specific objectives and are currently:

  • Maestro (and beyond): For their drop rate and crystal talents that make them ideal for farming rare drops, post office pens and crystal cards/drops. Crystal farming is also a key mechanic of this class with the Crystal Countdown talent lowering the skill experience required.
  • Bubonic Conjuror: For their Raise Dead talent and massive area of effect abilities to kill mobs for experience and drops at a rapid pace. They are useful for farming regular monsters and crystal monsters while also generating large quantities of alchemy liquid with Cranium Cooking.
  • Divine Knight: For their boost to experience and drop rate while Orb of Remembrance is active which also provides permanent bonuses to printer output for all characters based on orb kills. They also have the ability to revive monsters with Divine Intervention to acquire kills quickly when active although their talent designs are suited towards smaller flat maps. Due to the way the orb drop rate bonus is calculated they are particularly useful for farming any rare drop items (items within drop bags in the monster card screen) when active.
  • Siege Breaker: For their ability to spawn Plunderous Mobs which triggers enemy monsters to respawn at a rapid pace while building up permanent account stacks that boost the drop rate of all your characters. With a range of area of effect and high range attacks they are suited to a diverse list of maps although do prefer flat maps.
  • Elemental Sorcerer: For their ability to summon monsters from another dimension that provide bonus drop and experience and increase total wormhole kills for a damage bonus to the rest of your account. Due to the way dimensional mobs operate and their Wizard multikill bonus they are particular suited to farming basic monster drops (such as spore caps from Green Mushroom) when active or AFK.

  1. AWESOME GUIDE THANK YOU SO MUCH BROTHER! The amount of skill resets I’ve wasted is terrifying but as a passionate enjoyer of optimalising my character’s damage I am so grateful for this guide. Thank you for your hard work, you earned yourself a fan and a frequent reader of your guides! : )

  2. Same as the Guy over me said, nice one and Thank you for your work ✌🏻

  3. Dude!! this guide helps a lot, thank you for that. Just one question: Which would be the best class/classes AFK mode?

    • Hi Miguel

      Glad you found it useful! You have to remember that every character in Idleon has its purpose to your account and so they should all be AFK fighting at some point to gain enough levels and talent points to be useful at other activities (such as skilling).

      Generally you’ll find that your Barbarian class is your best AFK character early on as they have some good sources of easy damage boosts (such as the Zow skill) and their weapons are slightly easier to make overall so you can keep them well equipped. Once you build up alchemy and stamps (the main damage boosts for mages) I found both the Shaman and Wizard pretty deadly for a time in my account.

      At the super late stages of the game and your account progress though the Bowman subclass is definitely the favourite and currently the strongest because their damage boosts (speed and smithing levels) are uncapped compared to other classes and so can often be pushed further because of this although this takes a lot of effort to reach that point.

      This may all change when the next world (World 5) is released though!

  4. This has gotta be the single best resource on IdleOn other than the Wiki. Hopefully someone over there links to this instead of the Companion.

    • Thanks Voya! I’m glad they have proven useful, I’ve really enjoyed playing Idleon for the past 2 years and excited to share all of that knowledge with new players
